Civility dropped with the invention of the internet. It became "okay" to be mean, harass, and be a complete PITA behind the anonymous screen names and make believe personas. It stayed behind the scenes but not in public. It was nothing more than a training ground. Now, folks just practice on the net hoping they can get their own you-tube channel and their fifteen minutes of fame by being as nasty as possible. I would guess that there are a lot of folks who fifteen years ago wouldn't have had the courage to be so mean and nasty face-to-face, but their ability to "practice" has given them a taste of instant courage.

Because the truth is they perform much needed services. I mean when I get a flat tire on the freeway, who am I first to call? AAA roadside service that's who.
I change my own flat tire.

I can't imagine having to sit and wait for someone else to do such a simple task.

Jeez, you just can't admit you misspoke or made a mistake can you? What is it about conservatives hat doesn't allow them to be honest?!? Trump has never, ever admitted making a mistake, are you so infatuated with this immature liar that you feel like you have to act like him?!? It's such a low bar, you must be better than that.

The 'rules' dictate that the electoral college decides who takes office, but by no stretch of the imagination (or outright lie) can you claim that he was the, "voters choice'. Get a clue and admit the facts!

No worries, I'm under no illusions about effecting the changes I seek. After the electoral college overruled the will of the American voters and installed the last TWO Republicans in the WH, I'm not holding my breath waiting for conservatives to do the right or civil thing...

The left conveniently "forgets" things like John Tower and his judgeship hearings ,when it was over he said, "Where do I go to get my reputation back" after the dems trashed him.

The list is of dems despicable actions very long.

" Trump has never, ever admitted making a mistake,"

Trump, been in office for little over 5 months

8 years of Bill Clinton, 8 years of Obama, Hillary at the State dept., harry reid, Shumer, Pelosi, etc

When did ANY of THEM ever admit to "making a mistake"?

All of a sudden you care.

Don't act so sanctimonious. It doesn't fit.

Was it civil when Obama was in office and the right was at it? This outrage is amusing from people who took hateful rhetoric and made it an art form for 8 years.

Theyíre not going to like Trump. Heís too stupid, really. Boorish. Uncouth.

No dignified person likes Trump.

I cannot speak to the fringe types. Right or left, theyíre all loons.
This sums it up.
